Randy Johnson spent years in Seattle before going to the Diamondbacks and from there to the New York Yankees.






RANDY JOHNSON: STANDING TALL IN ARIZONA

The life and career of the tallest player in the history of major leage baseball is profiled in my 64 page library hardback from Chelsea House Publishers. This colorful, beautifully jacketed book describes how southpaw pitcher Randy Johnson rose from the minor leagues to the top of professional baseball.

Famous for his 100 mile per hour fastball, Johnson throws with just enough wildness to keep opposing batters seriously off balance.

Getting to the top of pro baseball wasn't easy for Johnson. Sensitive and moody, Johnson spent years mastering his craft, coping with injuries and handling contract disputes.

He now pitches for the Arizona Diamondbacks, coming from Montreal with stops along the way at Seattle and Houston. In his spare time Johnson takes photographs, contributes his energy and money to charity, and enjoys spending time with his family.

My book is written for elementary school readers but contains information of interest to baseball fans of all ages. I hope everyone will enjoy the story of this brilliant if sometimes hot-headed ballplayer.

Go Diamondbacks!
